Six Runs In An Over? But Wait, Six Wickets?


We have seen Yuvraj Singh’s six sixes in that magical night at Johannesburg in 2007. Now, at a local game in Australia, a bowler has got six wickets in as many balls. Aled Carey achieved the feat playing for his team Golden Point Cricket Club in the Ballarat Cricket Association fourth-team fixture match.

The opposition, East Ballarat were 40/2 when Carey started his over and were reduced to as many runs for the loss of eight wickets when he ended it. They went on to lost two more wickets without putting anything on the scoreboard and were dismissed for 40 runs.

“I’m still in a bit of shock. It’s something you don’t see very often and I think this was just my lucky day. I don’t think I’ll ever do it again,” Carey told The Courier Sport.

The news has spread like wildfire across the nation of Australia, but the world hasn’t been notified of this stellar performance since it was done in a domestic match. Another instance of a domestic achievement which has never been made in International cricket was Pranav Dhanawade’s 1009 in a school level cricket match.
